A happiness that is sought for ourselves alone can never be found: for a happiness that is diminished by being shared is not big enough to make us happy.  (Thomas Merton Quotes) How do you expect to arrive at the end of your own journey if you take the road to another man’s city?  (Thomas Merton Quotes) One has to be alone, under the sky, Before everything falls into place and one finds his or her own place in the midst of it all. We have to have the humility to realize ourselves as part of nature.  (Thomas Merton Quotes) Just remaining quietly in the presence of God, listening to Him, being attentive to Him, requires a lot of courage and know-how.  (Thomas Merton Quotes) The sacred attitude is, then, one of deep and fundamental respect for the real in whatever new form it may present itself.  (Thomas Merton Quotes) The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the other.... The whole purpose of life is to live by love.  (Thomas Merton Quotes) To allow oneself to be carried awayBy a multitude of conflicting concerns,To surrender to too many demands,...To commit oneself to too many projects,To want to help everyone with everythingIs to succumb to violence.  (Thomas Merton Quotes) The truth never becomes clear as long as we assume that each one of us, individually, is the center of the universe.  (Thomas Merton Quotes) A Christian is committed to the belief that Love and Mercy are the most powerful forces on earth  (Thomas Merton Quotes) The closer we are to God, the closer we are to those who are close to him  (Thomas Merton Quotes) In a world of noise, confusion and conflict it is necessary that there be places of silence, inner discipline and peace.

My dear brothers, WE ARE ALREADY ONE. BUT WE IMAGINE THAT WE ARE NOT. And what we have to recover is our original unity. What we have to be is what we are  (Thomas Merton Quotes) Every moment and every event of every man’s life on earth plants something in his soul  (Thomas Merton Quotes) In the end, it’s the reality of personal realtionships that save everything  (Thomas Merton Quotes) ... but any fool knows that you don’t need money to get enjoyment out of life.  (Thomas Merton Quotes) To be ordinary is not a choice: It is the usual freedom of men without visions  (Thomas Merton Quotes) For every gain in deep certitude there is a corresponding growth of superficial doubt. This doubt is by no means opposed to genuine faith, but it mercilessly examines and questions the spurious faith of everyday life, the human faith which is nothing but the passive acceptance of conventional opinion.  (Thomas Merton Quotes) To say that I am made in the image of God is to say that love is the reason for my existence, for God is love. Love is my true identity. Selflessness is my true self. Love is my true character. Love is my name.  (Thomas Merton Quotes) We cannot possess the truth fully until it has entered into the very substance of our life by good habits, and by a certain perfection of moral activity.  (Thomas Merton Quotes) I see no contradiction between Buddhism and Christianity ... I intend to become as good a Buddhist as I can.  (Thomas Merton Quotes) We have what we seek, it is there all the time, and if we give it time, it will make itself known to us  (Thomas Merton Quotes) Modern man believes he is fruitful and productive when his ego is aggressively affirmed, when he is visibly active, and when his action produces obvious results  (Thomas Merton Quotes) We are already one. But we imagine that we are not. And what we have to recover is our original unity. What we have to be is what we are  (Thomas Merton Quotes) A man knows when he has found his vocation when he stops thinking about how to live and begins to live  (Thomas Merton Quotes) Ask me not where I live or what I like to eat... Ask me what I am living for and what I think is keeping me from living fully that  (Thomas Merton Quotes) Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time  (Thomas Merton Quotes) Show us your Christ, Lady, after this our exile, yes: but show Him to us also now, show Him to us here, while we are still wanderers  (Thomas Merton Quotes) Our vocation is not simply to be, but to work together with God in the creation of our own life, our own identity, our own destiny... To work out our identity in God  (Thomas Merton Quotes) For me to be a saint means to be myself. Therefore the problem of sanctity and salvation is in fact the problem of finding out who I am and of discovering my true self  (Thomas Merton Quotes) He's not a safe safe or a tame God, securely lodged behind the bars of a distant Heaven; He has the most annoying manner of showing up when we least want Him; of confronting us in the strangest ways  (Thomas Merton Quotes)
